Heard about an interesting project

Two of the ladies in my stitching group are stitching for this project.

We had our monthly stitching group yesterday. The local LNS also had a Superbowl sale, but I just got my 123 order and I was again sorting through charts, so I decided not to go. Apparently, it was a zoo for those who went, so it's better I didn't go.

I saw this stitching. The plan is to stitch the entire Torah--the first 5 books of the Old Testament, I asked. This sounds like a massive undertaking. Not to mention, how heavy they are going to be, but it's pretty awesome to think about. I'm thinking about requesting a block, but there is a charge involved and not sure about the time commitment.

I spent the last two weeks stitching Lizzie Kate freebies. I have had these for several years, they came from the files of the Lizzie*Kate Yahoo group.

Joy to the World:

Stitched on Heatherfield with DMC flosses.
Bee My Friend

Stitched on a random scrap of yellow evenweave with DMC flosses
Slight customization of the tulip

These were pretty fun to do. Not terribly difficult, except that Heatherfield was killer on my hands. Now that the temps have started to come up a little (disregarding today, cause it's snowing here), they're not as chapped. Is spring here yet?
This is my new little WIP. It's another freebie from Cute Silver Dwarf's blog.  I started it Saturday night, with the recommended DMC, on a piece of PTP Fathom I had in the closet. Because it's so much black, I thought it would be easier to outline the big areas, not count as I go.  It's pretty fun to stitch 
I have no idea what I'll do with any of this. Maybe do a pillow out of the sheep, and a little ornament for the bee one. It will just be what strikes my fancy when I get to that point.

Cute finishes. I didn't know there was a LK Yahoo group.

Pretty LK finishes! Your cat WIP is also very cute. I will have to check out the Cute Silver Dwarf blog.

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
